If you want to jump right into the heart of Delhi upon arrival, you can’t do any better than staying in the Paharganj area of the city. It’s a market area, relatively relaxed during the morning, busy in the afternoon and intense in the evening…with hundreds of local shops, food stalls, restaurants and vendors everywhere you look.
It’s also extremely convenient – walking distance to the New Delhi Railway Station (most trains depart from here), walking distance to a metro stop and only 20 minutes walk from the more laid-back Connaught Place neighborhood.
So if you’re ready for the real experience, head to Paharganj and stay at Hotel Hari Piorko, the best budget hotel in Delhi.
There is no better budget hotel in the area, simple as that. With a proper lobby where you can escape the hustle and bustle outside to rooms ranging from simple 750 rupee ($13 USD) per night double rooms to fancier $30 per night rooms, all of which are incredibly well maintained compared to other hotels in the city, there’s a reason why it’s so popular.
The staff are plentiful, friendly and always ready to assist. The wifi usually works decently, the restaurant offers a good place to sit on the balcony, drink a tea and watch the world go by below and the rooms are comfortable and clean.
They offer airport pickup for a very small markup over a taxi, their money exchange desk always gives the best rate in the area and they are more than happy to help you get anywhere you need to go.
Having been to Delhi over 30 times and staying in about 25 different hotels over the years, I now go straight to Hari Piorko every time. I use them for my tours that I lead in India and I recommend them to everyone who wants a friendly, convenient, reliable and clean place to stay while on a budget.
